I really like the color and stillness of the water in this image. The reflection stands out beautifully. The petals of the flower stand out well too. I think the lily pad in the background looks good too.

Live this picture.the reflection of the flower gives it a type depth in a way.It also has a simplistic type quality that comes across so pure and gentle.makes it easy to put your mind in a peaceful place.

Pretty dancing flower with excellent reflection. You have sharp focus and perfect lighting shining right down on the flower giving a perfect reflection. Well centered with in the frame .
The flower blends well against the tone of the water and the green lily pad in the background. Very pretty.

Mike,
A beautiful picture of the white Water Lily that appears to glow from within it's centre the light glowing through it's petals, it's also reflected on the water it's floating on beside it's Lily Pads. Beautiful composition framing & lighting taken with superb camera techniques & sharp focus.

Oh this is beautiful MM. Gotta be a Florida piece for sure.

Excellent detail in your water Lily....w/ just a perfect reflection. Spot on w/ exposure too...your whites are clean and lovely. I like too how you've included the large pad behind it. Such a good piece for this contest and I'm sorry to say I used my final gold star not 10 or 15 mins ago MM b/c your presentation of this very pretty white blossom deserves one.

Deborah

Wow! This is very beautiful to look at. The flower looks like it is emanating light from it. The reflection underneath it is clear. The water looks so still. I like how you framed in a hint of a Lilly pad at the top. Nice work.

A refreshing sight. I like the clarity of the reflection, and how you've retained the natural colors. The framing can still be improve by giving more space to the right, where since the tilted flower seems to face in that direction. I think the white petals, is a bit too bright, I maybe, you can use manual setting with ISO 100 and f/5.6. or it depends on the light of the day. Keep playing with your f-stop and ISO if you are in the pond again.

Very nice shot of a white lily. Color and whites are well controlled to allow for the textures to come out. Nice reflection in the water. Just a hint of the center of the flower. Over all a very pleasing shot. Well done.
